The Playlist (via Collider) has the first photos from the set of Robert Redford’s The Conspirator, his film about Mary Surratt’s role in the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln. The film stars Robin Wright Penn as Surratt and James McAvoy as her defense attorney, Frederick Aiken. The photos show McAvoy and Evan Rachel Wood. Wood has joined the cast as Anna Surratt, Mary’s daughter.

Justin Long will be trying his hand at a dramatic role as McAvoy’s close friend. And also joining the cast is Tony Kebbell who was a stand out as musician/junkie Johnny Quid in RocknRolla. He’ll  play John Wilkes Booth. The word is that Booth is a minor role in The Conspirator. I’m hoping they expand it now that they’ve cast Kebell who I think is a great choice for Booth.

Robin Ruinsky has been a writer since penning her autobiography in fourth grade. Along the way she's studied theater at Syracuse University, worked with Woody Allen starring most of the time on the cutting room floor. A segue into the punk rock scene followed but writing was always the main focus. She writes for various crafty, artsy magazines about people who make craftsy, artsy collectible things. But her first love is writing fiction and film criticism which some people think are the same thing.
